Wild Well Control shows new Singapore capping stack

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Wild Well Control has unveiled a new subsea capping stack for use in a deepwater well control incident.  This second capping stack is in Singapore with the first kept in Aberdeen, UK.

The capping stack is part of Wild Well Control’s WellCONTAINED emergency response system. The system includes not only the capping stack and related equipment, but also technical planning, engineering, and response training.

The full intervention system at each location includes a capping stack, debris removal shears, hardware kits for the subsea application of dispersant and inhibition fluids at a wellhead, and ancillary equipment.

The new 183/4-in, 15,000-psi capping stack is available for a variety of offshore conditions and designed for subsea use to 10,000 ft (3,048 m) water depth. The system is maintained in a state of readiness and can be transported by sea or air.

“Since we now have two capping stacks geographically located in the northern and southern hemispheres, our team at Wild Well can provide an enhanced level of response to a client’s well site,” said Freddy Gebhardt, president at Wild Well, a Superior Energy Services company.
